Abstract

See full text

A method of transmitting data from a source to a destination is described. A quality of service (QoS) tunnel is established between the source and the destination. Traffic from the source, and intended for the destination, will be sent via this tunnel. The traffic is manipulated by passing it through a performance enhancement proxy (PEP), in order to eliminate the “slow start” mechanism inherent to TCP traffic.
